Ballyneale NS participates in the Health Promoting Schools Programme run by the H.S.E.  A Health promoting school can be categorised as a school constantly strengthening its capacity as a health setting for Living, Learning and Working.  It is about giving the school a special focus on health.  It encourages teachers, students and parents to look at how healthy lifestyles and environments may be built upon within the school.

The children participate in the Zippy’s Friends Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing Programme as part of this initiative.
